During a recent hurricane event with sustained winds, our client’s datacenter and central energy plant experienced zero downtime.

Located in a region of the United States that experiences extreme weather events, this new data center and central energy plant was designed to withstand any disruptive event.

To build a facility to meet every potential scenario and operational contingency, our client incorporated:

  • Energy efficiency to support current operations and offset potential future shortages.
  • Storm-proofing the exterior against damage from airborne debris.
  • Structure with the ability to withstand seismic events.
  • Meteorological control systems adapt operations to local weather events in real time.
  • Multi-faceted security with redundancy and audited review.
  • Staff training, wellness and safety considerations.
